Some Will Not Sleep, in a limited edition hardback edition, is coming closer … Some may sleep after the 400 hardbacks are delivered to me next week, though I won’t be among them. I’m going to be up to my plums in preparing for the launch and road trip from South Devon to Scarborough.
My running sheets arrived from the printers, CPI, late yesterday. The book has been stitched so I just needed to approve the jacket, boards and endpapers, which you can see below. The book’s constituent parts are all looking a bit infernal and ominous and I like the cut of their cloth. In the vast cosmic horror of discovery hell, the book’s imagery may also help readers identify that it contains no whimsical reflections of village life or any love stories.
The first public appearance of the hardback of SOME WILL NOT SLEEP: SELECTED HORRORS will be at its launch at Fantasycon, and you are all invited. More details about the collection’s wider availability, and the store, go out in my September newsletter. Once I have the actual book and have given it a photo session, I’ll fire the newsletter out. The official pub date is Halloween (this year, I hope).
